The Epworth league state convention has
como and gone and the delegates will nearly
all depart for homo today. In some respects
the convention was disappointing to the EI > -

much needed and one of which enlarged the

with the entertainment provided for them
by the citizens of Omaha nnd went homo

The delegates who remained over Sunday

that they desired yesterday morning , as the

Strong Sermon by n T.nymnn.
The league work Is calculated to emphasize
the fact that some of the most effective ser
mons preached are delivered by laymen.
Yesterday morning nt the First Methodist
church Mr. B. L. Pnino M. D. , of Lincoln ,
delivered nn address which was very much
enjoyed by the audience and wa. overflowing
with good thoughts along the lines of Chris
tian work. He touched UIKHI the tendency
of the Methodist church to grow tnafp staid
and conservative upon the matter orThaklng
religious zeal manifest nnd said that there
wore hundreds of people in the church who
had been converted at camp meetings or at
nn old-fashioned mourner's bench , but were
ashamed to admit it because they thought
that such methods of revival work were
growing unpopular. Ho believed in the old-
fash ionod camp meeting revivals and ho saw
no harm in excitement wlioro there was a
genuine spirit of religious zeal behind it.
ICuppod Curd riuyors uiul Theater Goers.
The speaker was of the opinion that too
many professed Christians wont about shirk
ing their plain duty. "I have known ueoplo
when they first struck a town , " said Dr.
Paine , "to spend several weeks trying to
find out which church had the smallest debt
and Into thnt church they went hoplhg to
escape helping carry a burden for the good
of the cause they professed to be interested
in. " Ho believed that it was the duty of all
Epworth leaguers to take hold manfully and
help along with the financial affairs of the
churches they belonged to and not bccomo
mere hangers on. Touching the subject of
theaters and card playing the speaker said it
was a'sliama that so mariy young Christians
wcro impressed with the idea that they
could not go in good society unless they
played cards and went to theaters. "Wo
ought to lift the Christian life up so high , "
said the .speaker , "that instead of the young
Christians trying to climb over the fence
into worldly pastures tlio worldly people
would bo trying to climb over into the church
in order to enjoy life. "
Ho struck fashionable society several very
hard raps that provoked laughter In
the audience. Ho also expressed
his disapproval of that , which is
known as "Christian Science. " Being a
physician himself his remarks on that par
ticular subject were of especial interest.
"Thoy cull it Christian science , " said Dr.
Paine , and then ho stopped and shaking his
head solemnly said , "the devil , " in a way
that told the audience exactly whore ho
stood on the subject. "It is a misnomer , " ho
continued , "for 1 have noticed that when
ever this peculiar craze gets hold of people
they soon cease to work for the Master. " Ho
related several rather amusing incidents in
connection witn his practice as a physician
bearing directly upon the so called "Chri -
tian science" method of healing. In closing
the speaker exhorted the Epworth leaguers
to bo moro airgrcssivo and zealous in the
cause they had espoused and to make thorn-
selves useful at every possible opportunity
in Helping the poor and the unfortunate aud
in drawing people away from every form ol
sin into ways of righteousness.
Held u Musi Mooting.
The mass meeting in the afternoon was
largely attended , llov. Frank Crane de
livered an address on ' 'The Big Church , "
the gro.it outside world not included iu any
of the Christian churches. The "Big
Church" was n powerful organization , ho
said , and ono in which there wcro many con
sistent pcoplo. The lived for the world and
usually got what they wanted. The big
church was a liberal church. When people
of the world wanted anything they were
willing to uay for it. They attended to the
moans by which they were kept in the big
church. They believed In attending the
theater , the gambling don or the horse race
with a good deal of enthusiasm and in largo
numbers. Nothing wont by halves In the
Contrasted with this there stood the little
church , or the people who believed and pro
fessed Christianity. Many of them were in
consistent. While pretending to bo living
for Heaven and the good of the human race
they were laying up tholr treasures on eart.h.
While pretending to desire to see the whoio
world Christianized they only gave at the
rate of ono sixteenth of ono per cent of their
income to the support of missions. If Chris
tian people of the United States would give
but ono cant apiece for tlio support of for
eign missions it would amount to & ] 7X)0,000 (
per annum whereas last year they only
gave * . -i,000WO. , (
In this strain the speaker wont on showIng -
Ing the littleness of the Christian church in
o very way until ho had his aud lonco com
pletely plunged into pessimistic blues. Ho
pictured the triumphs of atheism and infi
delity In Klowlmr language , closing with the
victory of the anti-Sabbath observers in
opening the gates of the World's fair at
Cnlcago , It really looked as though the
speaker would predict the entlro extinction
of Christianity before ho closed. But after
he had held the dark side of the picture up
to tils audience about as long as it could bo
silently endured ho turned on t'io side lights
of his hope , nnd there came a change tha <
approached the dramutlu In effect ant
brought applause and tears in liberal qunn
Ho pictured the , strongholds of Chris
tianity surrounded by the enemy , the atheist
the Sabbath breaker and the devotees o
greed and worldly pleasure. Only n few
more ramparts remained to bo taken and the
hope of the Christian would perish from of
the face of the earth. The old guard , com
posed of such people as Bishop Nlndo
Frances Willard , Dr. Craf U and others , nov
manfully holding the fort against sin , intern
pcrauco unit Sabbath breaking , were almos
ready to give up the fight , when they noticoc
a strange movement in the distance. There
seemed to bo a commotion along the horizon
nnd It wns soon discovered that there wcro
largo numbers of people coming toward tin
besieged garrison of Christianity. Were
they friends or fees ? The fluid glass wa

The usual quiet of the sanctuary wa
broken by the sound of enthusiastic applaus
whoa the speaker rounded thu graceful and
luquont climax of his ( Tliconrso. In con
tusion ho said thnt although the conflict bo-
ween the big ohurch rtnd. the lltllo ono , bo-

organize itself into a society to battle
against trusts In whatever shape they may

Homo lnttanc A of the Itnln'a
Work In tlio City.
The ruin wrought by the rain storm of
Saturday night was oven greater than
Irst reports Indicated , nnd yestonlay morn-
ng there was scarcely a street In the city
.hat did not show traces of the water's
work. Many of the unRrodcil streets vrero
very badly washed out nnd much damage
was done to the curbing iln many places and
sewers on the ungraded streets suffered
In the wholesale district many of the
basements of warehouses wcro filled and
considerable damage caused , The Chicago
Lumber company suffers to the amount of
S0,000 from the flooding of the cellar of
their warehouse nnd the ruining of n largo
amount of llino nnd cement.
The largo warehouse of the Dewey &
3tono Furniture company , under the Tenth
street viaduct , was badly damaged. The
water that rushed down the railroad tracks
poured over the walks nnd weakened the
walls ot the rear portion of the building. At
3:80 : o'clock the wall on the south side col
lapsed , tearing down n portion of the roof.
The point at which the wall fell was used
for unloading cars and but little furniture
was near the entrance. The rain poured
into the opening for n time , but the damage
to the stock was very light.
That section of the city west of Sixteenth
street and between Castcllar nnd Mason al
ways suffers from heavy rainfalls and the
storm of Saturday night did the u unl dnm-
ago to the barns , outhouses nnd small cot
tages that are built along the gorges as rapIdly -
Idly as they are built up after each storm ,

Street railway travel proceeded yesterday
as if there had been no storm on Saturday
ovontng , trains starting on tlino and there
being no interference with the regular
schedule. The drift that obstructed the
tracks in many portions of the city was
cleared away soon after daylight , the water
having receded almost as rapidly ns it rose.
It was not a moment's Job. however , to re
pair the damage done to paving and sewers ,
and 11 large force of men will bo occupied
with that for several days to como.
Neither could the damage done to
private property in invaded dwellings
and store building bo repaired In a day ,
and although the water promptly deserted
the quarters that it had temporarily claimed
for Its own , there are several families who
will not bo able to again occupy their houius
until the wagons of the graders shall have
carted away the Inch or two of rofuao and
dirt that was deposited by the Hood on their
The scene of the water's invasion on the
north side , along the line of the old North
Omaha creek , presented far from a pleasing
appearance yesterday. In the early morn
ing an immense laKC coversod n largo part of
the territory , but it had drained away by
afternoon , except In the low places ,
whcro it had to remain until it
could settle into the drenched earth.
Grnoo street near Twenty-second was
filled with sidewalk in twenty foot sections ,
and Clark street near the same point was a
wobbly sea of paving blocks. Twenty-fourth
stx-cot along Kountzo Place was also very
much unsettled as to the condition of its
paving blocks , which lay iu ridges along the
Kxperlcnco ot Many Families.
Furniture hung out to dry was a common
sight , and in a number of houses the occu
pants wcro doing their house cleaning with
a shovel instead of a mop or a broom.
The residence of Mr. G. C. Place , near the
corner of Lake and Fifty-fourth streets ,
was struck by lightning Saturday night
during the fierce thunderstorm. The chim
ney was utterly demolished and the cornice
of "the house considerably damaged , but no
ono was seriously injured.
Mrs. Bodling , who lives at 821 South Sev
enteenth avouuo , had a little taste of what
lightning can do when It tries in the way of
scaring people. She was in a room with her
daughter during the fury of the storm. Sud
denly there was a cracking In the room , and
then a great shoot of llamo shot out from
the walls. "With a scream , Mrs. Bodling foil
In a faint. Others rushed into the room and
saw the flames vanish through a window ,
leaving a much heated sulphurous tasting at
mosphere behind. No serious damage was
done the building , and the lady only suffered
from the fright.

The body of William O'Kceffo , a private in
company F , Second Infantry , Fort Omaha ,
was found at 9 o'clock yesterday morning nt
a point several hundred foot below Fort
street by Charles Gruuor , a 12-year-old boy.
When discovered the face of the dead man
was downward and covered with the mud In
the small crcok which drains the Fort
The deceased was a native of Ireland and
had cnllsvcd for the second tlmo in the army.
Coroner Maul hold an inquest In the after
noon which developed that O'ICcoffo had
been drinking heavily on Saturday evening
in company with n follow soldier. Ho loft
the latter in a saloon , and ns near ns could bo
determined fell from the sidewalk across the
sewer on Thirtieth street into the little
crook which nt the llmo overflowed Its
banks and the walk , so that it was perhaps
six feet in depth.
From hero the body was carried
about half a milo to the point whcro
it was found after the water sub
sided. Several bruises found about the face
and head wcro evidently sustained while the
body floated down stream nnd in coming in
contact with stones or some other substance
on the banks. The first theory that foul
play had been committed because n remark
to the effect that O'Kceffo had probably
drowned was made by his companion before
the discovery of the remains , was not borne
out by the facts.
The verdict was therefore accidental

poet was made public ;
On the night of the murder Currolcro entered -
terod a shoo dealer's store near the south
end of Sagamoro mill and asked for a pair of
shoos. Ho pulled out of his pocket a silver
trade dollar , apparently brand now. Ho also
nulled out a silver half dollar with a hole in

Bertha's slater tostllled that the trade
dollar came Into Bortlm'a possession fourteen -

disclosed the fact that it bore the duto of
1878. During the Investigation Cnrreloro
denied ho had over offered u silver half dollar
lar with hole In It to the shoo dealer , but a
Portuguese who acted as interpreter with
the storekeeper stated positively that ho
had. The shoo dealer said that Carrolorq
had what appeared to bo u lady's poukot-
book aud that ho took money from it , The
( pockctbook was taken from Bertha's room ,
Testimony was also introduced to show
'that ' a man answering the Portuguese
description was scon running in the direction
'of the Manchester farm. Tho. authorities
say there U additional evidence of suctt
